Interested in Having Your City Recognized as a Scenic City?
Texas cities need every competitive edge for economic development and tourism. Cities that boast high standards for their public roadways and public spaces have the advantage in attracting the attention of site selection specialists, meeting planners, and visitors. The Scenic City Certification Program publicly recognizes cities with these established scenic standards.
Join us for an hour-long Webinar at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 6, to hear Scenic Texas Executive Vice President Anne Culver explain the Scenic City Certification Program (www.sceniccitycertification.org) and the process for applying.
Registration is $45 per computer connection. Gather your co-workers to participate in this hour-long session, and get your questions answered. For more information about the Webinar and to register, visit Scenic City Certification Program Webinar.
